In one of the most competitive Oscar categories of the season, actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Lupita Nyong’o are neck-and-neck in the race for the best supporting actress prize.
A report published in Vanity Fair, takes a look at how J. Law came out of the gate strong, with a win at the Golden Globes, but Nyong’o has surged, picking up the SAG trophy and gaining the coveted, somewhat intangible momentum. But now even their styles are coming into comparison as the magazine looks at their garments from the past and present.
Along the way this awards season, Nyong’o has become something of an “It girl,” scoring magazine covers left and right (including our own) and achieving “fashion darling” status.
Lawrence—though she generally demonstrates a blasé attitude toward fashion—also receives much attention for her red carpet frocks, if not for the accidents said dresses occasionally cause.
While we eagerly wait to see what these two women wear on Sunday night, we thought we’d take a look back at their sartorial pasts, which include more similarities than you might expect.
